math

Boost - Dev mailing list
Hello Developers, Hello John,
thanks for making the float128_t features I missed available in boost 1.71. But:
- I miss in boost::math::constants log2_e (M_LOG2E); You have written in the documentation that all constants are now available; are there any other constants missing?
- in boost/multiprecision/float128.hpp, the value in numeric_limits<float128_t>::is_bounded must be true

Thanks and Greetings
Gero

That's the same as 1/ln(2) or 1 / boost::math::constants::ln_two<T>()

But it's come up before so I'll add it shortly.

Good catch, corrected in develop.

Thanks, John.
